Little King is, in fact, little. It’s a very small cocktail bar just off the Graham stop of the L train in East Williamsburg. The entrance is discreet (it’s right next to a bodega), and once you get inside it feels like a hotel lobby bar (a very small one). Service is very casual, and there’s even a kitchen in back that turns out small plates. Stop by with a date. It’s dark, intimate, and you can usually smell the food while it’s cooking in the kitchen. It doesn’t smell bad.

Antica Pesa is both crazy and endearing, and a far cry from some of the other restaurants around here that hand you some food and a paper napkin and then wait for you to leave.
Fletcher's Brooklyn BBQ
Fletcher's serves up some great pulled pork, and is a solid local BBQ stop if you're around Gowanus. We just wouldn't travel for it.

Bonnie's Grill is a great neighborhood spot with a full menu of divey bar food classics. However, we still need better options for wings in the city, and Bonnie's doesn't quite make the cut.
The Jeffrey is an Upper East Side East beer garden and espresso bar, with great bar snacks and excellent cocktails. Be happy you’ve heard of it.
Boulton & Watt
Boulton & Watt is a solid neighborhood hang with average bar food and some TVs for sports viewing purposes. Adjust expectations accordingly.
